  • Frac Sand Drying Methods: Rotary vs. Fluid Bed

    To reach gas that was previously thought to be unreachable, pressure is used to fracture rock formations deep underground to allow a better flow of gas through a well. When the pressure is removed, the fracture collapses, which dramatically diminishes its effectiveness. A special type of refined...
